There will be games and a castle bouncy house for the kids. Tickets are $5 at the door; children younger than 12 and Durango Double participants enter free.

Proceeds from food sales benefit Local First, with additional proceeds going to Sexual Assault Services Organization.

Oktoberfest will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Buckley Park on Main Avenue between 12th and 13th streets.
